No Offense to Eggies, but God Did Eggs Right the First Time
But never has he come home with something more ridiculous than the Eggies. Maybe you've been up late with sick children or a nasty case of insomnia and you've seen the infomercial.
The idea is that you can have boiled eggs without having to deal with the "hassle" of peeling the shells of the hard-boiled eggs. Let me tell you what you deal with instead of the shells.
First, you crack the eggs into the little plastic case and put the lid on. Then you carefully put them in the boiling water. Be careful. After the eggs have cooked, you simply untwist the plastic egg case and there's your cooked egg. No shells to peel straight into the garbage.
Instead, you get to clean them. And we all know how easily egg comes off dishes. So I scrubbed each little piece. There was egg residue on each piece including in the little creases. It was difficult to get all the egg out.
Travis boiled six eggies. I could have peeled six eggs in two or three minutes tops. As it was, I spent seven or eight minutes cleaning the eggies.
And then I had to figure out where to store them.
Definitely not worth the hassle. Or the money. No matter how good the deal was.
